Find Care and Guidance
If you are feeling unwell or have a health question, MVP makes it easy to connect with health care professionals to get the help you need.
With the Gia by MVP mobile app, you’ve got a guide to your health (and your health plan) with you every step of the way.
Urgent Care or Emergency Room?
If your situation requires an immediate visit to a doctor or health care facility, it’s important to understand your options:
Urgent care is best when you need care now but it’s not an emergency. An urgent care facility:
- May be closer to you
- Will cost less for the same services
- May save you time
The emergency room is best for life-threatening situations. Trips to the emergency room for care that you can get elsewhere will cost extra time and money.
The following table is a good guide for what kinds of conditions are better for a particular kind of care.
